    Which teams do you consider to be Blue Bloods?

    Who do you think are the blue bloods of college hoops? What is your criteria? I think some obvious ones are KU, KY, IND, NC, UCLA .

    My criteria would be success going back to the 60s up to the current era. It would also include having multiple national championships with championships coming under different coaches. However, that would leave out Duke since to my knowledge they have won their championships only under coach K but i'm too lazy to look it up.

    Some others that might be considered are Louisville, MSU, G'town . What are your thoughts?

    Duke is definitely a blue blood.

    Nobody really cares about UCLA anymore. I would scratch them off of the list

    Have you seen a UCLA home game any time recently? It's a half empty arena with fairly mediocre teams - not really indicative of a supposed blue blood program.

    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".

    I was just going to post the Huskies. That would be my vote, too.

    As much as I hate to say it, Ohio State is also a perennial contender. Michigan State usually is pretty solid, too.

    I'd say that's the list, with the possible inclusion of MSU.
